Topic: Italian Gardens
About the Speaker:
Andrea Aldrich, tour guide and founder, has been guiding small groups to her favorite destinations in Italy for more than ten years. She has lived and studied in Florence, speaks Italian and has traveled extensively throughout the regions of Italy. A background as an artist and teacher has been instrumental in her ability to develop tours that give a greater understanding of this country’s rich art, culture and history.
Through photographs and narrative we will explore the history and the cultural shifts that influenced the design of some of the most incredible gardens in the world. Our journey will take us from the Italian Renaissance to the twenty-first century.
DANTE ALIGHIERI SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON
Live Meeting COVID Guidelines
Even as COVID variants continue to plague the population, we are trying to return to offering live meetings for Dante this season. We’ve all been longing for a return to shared meals, and since this is foundational to Dante activities, we want to make it possible. Following the guidelines and regulations now in place by many workplaces, public venues and community groups, the Dante Board of Directors has agreed to the guidelines listed below as an acceptable plan to keep us as safe as possible when meeting in person.
1) Please do not attend if you have been exposed to COVID, or are experiencing any symptoms of illness. We will make best efforts to record the presentations so that those who cannot attend in person can enjoy them afterwards. There will also be a few meetings presented on ZOOM instead of live this season, for all to enjoy like last year.
2) Masks are encouraged. Although no longer required, we encourage attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
Thank you again for your understanding and observance of these guidelines. Let’s work together to control COVID!!!
